Notice to Quit or Pay in Virginia

If a landlord wants to evict a tenant for not paying rent, the landlord must provide WRITTEN notice. Generally, it is given as a notice to either move or pay rent in 5 days (often called a 'Quit or Pay'). If the tenant pays the rent in five days, tenant gets to stay. If tenant does not pay, the landlord can start an eviction process in the county General District Court (GDC).

A tenant does not have to move just because the landlord has given the Pay or Quit notice.
